Hard candies are very easy to make. Found a good recipe in metric so you don't have to try to figure out crazy American measurements.

750 g white sugar
355 ml light corn syrup
235 ml water
15 ml flavored extract
3 ml food coloring (optional)
30 g confectioners' sugar for dusting

In a medium saucepan, stir together the white sugar, corn syrup, and water. Cook, stirring, over medium heat until sugar dissolves, then bring to a boil. Without stirring, heat to 300 to 310 degrees F (149 to 154 degrees C), or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms hard, brittle threads.
Remove from heat and stir in flavored extract and food coloring, if desired. Pour onto a greased cookie sheet, and dust the top with confectioners' sugar. Let cool, and break into pieces. Store in an airtight container.
